Well, that didn’t take long:
Forty percent of registered voters support impeaching President Trump, according to a poll released Thursday from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP).
Nearly half of voters, 48 percent, are opposed to impeaching Trump, and 12 percent remain unsure, according to the poll.
Or to put it another way: 52% of the country wants to get rid of Trump or they’re not sure they want to get rid of him yet. Other findings were that 52% of voters would very much like Obama back and 49% disapprove of the job Trump has done so far. And it’s been less than two weeks.
Trump, of course, will call this fake news and ignore it. He’s already struggling with the fact he lost the popular vote by just shy of three million and no one considers him a legitimate president. He’s in utter denial about the sparse crowd at his inauguration and has been flying into rages over people protesting his cruel and malicious executive orders. These are the signs of a presidency rapidly unraveling under the pressure of Trump’s own incompetence.
And all of this disapproval is before Trump actually faces a real crisis which he will almost certainly mishandle. By appointing inexperienced people to high level positions, we as a nation will be unprepared to act in a wise and decisive manner when the time comes. The only thing that will be worse than the botched response will be the temper tantrum and angry denials of responsibility that will follow from Trump’s administration.
When that time comes (and it will, guaranteed), we have to make sure that Trump doesn’t lie his way out of his responsibility and that Republicans don’t lie their way out of their responsibility for enabling Trump in the first place. America has a painfully short memory and it’s about time Republicans were held accountable for the terrible things they’ve done, and are about to do, to the country.
